Overview

An established resource through three editions, the Introductory Textbook of Psychiatry has been thoroughly revised to make it an even more effective text. The authors have trimmed the content of the previous edition to make the book more practical and easier to use, while continuing to interweave recent advances in psychiatry with the core knowledge that new students need—from grasping the neurobiology of mental illness to understanding DSM.

This user-friendly volume introduces students to a wide range of psychiatric diagnoses while providing additional coverage of special topics such as violence and suicide, legal issues, childhood disorders, sleep disorders, and both psychosocial and somatic therapies. It includes a detailed introduction to the interview process, a critical review of DSM, up-to-date information on drugs, and chapters devoted to specific conditions, from cognitive disorders to impulse-control disorders. Its didactic aids include compelling case vignettes and “clinical pearls”—even more numerous in this edition—plus self-assessment questions and a glossary newly added for this edition.
